Design Tasmania is Australia’s premier design centre since 1976 dedicated to furthering design in Tasmania through our exhibitions, collection and retail space. We are a not-for-profit bringing design to as many people as possible with the belief that “Design Makes the Difference”™. Design Tasmania is a respected enabler of innovative Australian design practice through a commitment to community, sustainability and impact. We encourage creative risk-taking and facilitate the creation and exhibition of new works, to broaden the national and international audience for Tasmanian craft and design, and champion a culture of creativity, inclusion and innovation. Located in the award-winning Gary Cleveland Galleries in Launceston, for over 44 years we have informed, inspired, educated (and sometimes challenged) the public, designers, makers, and opinion leaders to recognize and strive for excellence in design and design thinking.
Our unique location comprising of five interconnected exhibition spaces plus a retail offering housed in the adjoining Price Hall, enables us to present a rich program of events, exhibitions, projects and activities that provide opportunities for these diverse communities to gather together. We achieve this through an artistic program built on education opportunities, engagement strategies, public programming and a strong focus on our Design Tasmania Wood Collection.
